Ford Galaxy 2011 gear stick stuck in park won't move


Lots of modern vehicles fitted with auto transmission have a safety lock preventing the gear lever being moved unless the ignition is on and the brake pedal applied.

This probably applies to your car and if the system is faulty it will leave the gear lever stuck. Usually it is possible to hear the lock release.

If the transmission end selector lever is accessible, disconnecting the cable or rod from the lever and moving it by hand will provide a clue whether the problem is inside the box or the cable or gear lever.

2004 jeep liberty won't move when put in gear (like brakes are locked).crank it in neutral put in gear it will go till i touch brakes then won't move again.WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS THING.


gear, is this a Manual trans? or AUTO you said gear.
what gear, please name the gear, 1,2,3,4,5 R
or PRNDL ( a/t box auto matic) what shift lever selection?
what is out door air temp, you do know brakes can get wet and freeze right?
it wont go you meant? until brakes are touched, key word won't?

ok engine only starts in PRNDL set to N??
is that it?
and then when you shift to D, the car will not move
what about the other gears.? try them all yet?

my guess (wild) is that you dont know how park lock out works.?
that you must hold the brake pedal down to shift to park or neutral.
is that it? (read operators guide?)

my guess is car is not drive-able. key point1 (a dead car)
point 2, engine starts and runs. and races on demand with gas foot.
point 3, im lost. (no trans stated or clear symptoms.)

my jeep has 6speed manual box
and the clutch allows me to start car.
on Automatics trans must be in park or neutral to crank engine.

"it will go till i touch brakes"



I read that 10 times,
my 2nd guess. the engine stalls ?

IS THAT IT, stalls means engine RPM is 0
and right foot actions are dead.
and all dash lamps glow, telling you STALL is now.

My battery is dead and I can't move the car due to the auto gear shift stuck in park. How do I move the car to get a jump on the battery?


if you look on the center council where the shift lever is you will see a small plastic button on the drivers. Remove the button. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole and push down. You will then be able to move the shift lever into nuetral and push the car.

My lumina wont start. the key turns into the second position but wont advance to the starting position much like something is blocking it. what can i do?


If there are other keys on the key chain that holds the car key remove them. Now try starting the car. If that doesn't work wiggle the key and depress brake pedal, move shifter lever into neutral and try starting the car.
If the car starts take it right to a repair shop there are several things that could be wrong with it .(neutral safety switch,shifter release,shifter , ignition switch)
If car doesn't start have it towed there and stay away from ignition switch no need to force it to start youe gonna break thekey in the switch and ahve a bigger problem.

Ive turned of my jag in park mode, now i cant restart it


Does your dash light up to indicate you have a battery source or power? If yes you have power try starting it in neuatral or in another gear. If it starts in neatrual maybe your selector going bad. If it starts in other gears repair the shift selector. Three If no power indicated check fuses. four will motor crank or turn over if yes look for a drivability problem. If no final maybe bad ignition switch. Need to replace ignition switch. Probably time for service

Starting Toyota Estima Lucida


There are various things this could be ie inhibitor switch on auto box relays wiring fault or ignition barrel problems try putting the starting the car in N instead of P and wiggle gear lever about other option bypass everything and connect a live feed straight to starter motor cranking wire which is located on the starter motor, if car still wont turn over tap starter motor with a hammer, if hammer trick works then you need a new starter

1996ford econ Shifting gear problem


Almost definately, follow the shift linkages down the column and under the bonnet get a buddy to move them while you are looking the worn parts will be very obvious. quite involved to repair if it all needs to be overhauled, may be best to be left to an experianced tech, unless you have relevent experience. it wont start somtimes because the inhibitor switch is on the linkage.
